I think the 6000 dollar Kaline has better gloss.

I just had to bump this old thread, because glory be!!!! The seller has cut his opening bid by a whopping two thirds. Of course, that is still over 2,000 times as much as the card listed immediately above it in the ebay search...

What a deal! Because it's not how much you spend, it's how much you save!

This kind of stuff has been going on since the inception of eBay. Here is a story, and every word true. I feel that I might be responsible for an eBay policy change. Some years back before I retired from the Navy, I watched several bidders go into a feeding frenzy over a book I owned, entitled "Battle Report - Pearl Harbor to the Coral Sea", which I bought for something like $10 in mint condition with dust jacket. It was and still is a common and available book. These people finally concluded bidding at $610. I contacted the runner-up bidder, and via PM's, he aggressively stated he wanted my book. When I asked what price, he said, well, since the eBay bidding went to $610, how about $600? I agreed, and sure enough, he sent a cashier's check in that amount. I could not in clear conscience cash that check. I returned the check, and the book, to him along with a letter stating the facts about this book, it's true value, and a request for the $10 I paid for the book. The lesson learned here is an old one, a fool and his money are soon parted. They are surely out there, and unscrupulous sellers on eBay only hope they come along. More often than not, they do.

Whoa!!!! Spoke way too soon. He has now suddenly increased his new 'steal of an opening bid' price by 75 freaking percent...

So did you sell one book or 2?

Back in the day when eBay was new people like me did cause new eBay rules. I had many multiples of cards that were considered rare at the time. I would list them at the lowest price I would sell a card for. Then message every bidder and offer them another but same card for their high bid. So from one listing I could easily sell several cards and only pay eBay fees on one card.

This is how I built my 2001 bowman heritage set. I would contact bidders of heritage lots, while bidding was occurring, and request buying duplicates or trading. It worked out great for me.

No just the one book. I just couldn't believe how these folks went so nuts over a common book someone was selling. Yes, a $10 book went for $610 when the dust settled. So I got hold of the 2nd place bidder behind the scenes and sold mine for $600. My conscience and my wife guilted me into returning his $600 cashier's check and finally selling him the book for $10. But I proved my point that people will buy anything, including baseball cards. I can't tell you the number of fake cards that came into my nephew by marriage's stamps, coins and cards shop back in the 1990s. This is how I learned to authenticate them. Once you learn, the fakes stand out like sore thumbs, even in lo-res eBay auction photos.

And yes, you can name your price, and someone with more money than common sense will come along. Just have some patience...

I misunderstood your original post. I thought the original listing was also yours. WOW has eBay changed over the years. In the late 90s when eBay was getting more popular. You would watch for cards that sell for good prices but still were considered rare. Then run a quick 3 day auction that ended before the other sellers listing. You would steal his high bidders and your card would sell for more.

Not sure what the deal was with those '73 Kellogg's cards, but there are a surprising number of them that survived apparently in Mint or Gem Mint condition.

Since there is no emoji in your post, I'm going to take a chance and assume you're not being facetious.

It seems most people sent away for the full, perforated sets, so they just remained untouched and unhandled for decades in attics and closets. They didn't have that 3-D Kellogg's magic attached to them, so they were forgotten about. PSA 10's are ridiculously plentiful (and I know, because I'm trying to piece together a PSA 10 set).

Right. It stands to reason I guess.
